USAO student organizes benefit exhibition
CHICKASHA -- A bull-riding exhibition to benefit the families who lost loved ones in a recent car crash is scheduled for Saturday, beginning at 4 p.m. at the Cyril Rodeo Arena.
Hollie Brumley, a student at the University of Science and Arts, is organizing the benefit to help offset costs to the families affected by the crash.
“All the proceeds goes directly to the families,” Brumley said.
“That’s everything from the concession to the gate money and the donations accumulated through the event. Without the help of all my amazing friends, family, and my church (Cyril First Assembly of God) this would not be possible, but what is bad, God makes better and I want to be a part of that.”
Tickets are $7 for adults and $3 for kids 12 and under. Vendors may set up at the benefit for a one-time $25 fee.
“The event will start with a section of big bulls being bucked and then the minis for our littler cowboys, seven to 14 years old. We’ll end it up with another section of big bulls. Prizes will be given away all day.”
The April 7 crash which occurred near Cement claimed the lives of three members of the Mayall family as well as Chickasha resident Vicky Meredith. Chance Mayall, age 3, survived the crash along with two of the three occupants in the other car but all have incurred considerable medical debt as a result.
The Mayalls’ oldest daughter, Courtney is also a USAO student and was not involved in the crash.
